Westchester escapes Isabel relatively unscathed
The hurricane season's first major storm downed power lines here and there, but Hurricane Isabel will probably remembered more for what it could've done than what it actually did.Except for having to avoid a few downed branches, traveling Westchester Roads wasn't too bad. Motorists did have to deal with a few snags such as being delayed at traffic lights that weren't working, like the one on Lincoln Avenue in Pelham. Con Edison reported 12,000 outages County-wide throughout the duration of the storm, but said by late Friday afternoon only 3,000 customers were still without electricity. Some downed trees at Hudson Park were almost a welcome sight for some people, because the real concern was what could have happened to the boats moored in the entrance of the harbor.
